We have been on the hunt for a new car seat since we realised Mia had slightly outgrown hers a few months ago. With car seats being expensive but obviously needed, you can’t afford to get it wrong and don’t get much chance to ‘try before you buy!’ We also have 2 cars and have found ourselves almost caught out a few times when heading to pick Mia up from my mums and realising we were in Mario’s car! Luckily Grandma has a car seat in her car for us to borrow! When we were asked if we would like to try out a new design of the BubbleBum Booster Seat, it came at the right time for us so we were really looking forward to seeing what the booster seat would be like!
BubbleBum have created a cute range of children’s booster seats to suit everyone and the designs aren’t the only cute thing about them! The booster seats themselves are unique in that they are fully portable and travel friendly. Ideal for 4-11 year olds (15kg-36kg’s) the booster seats are easily inflated in 20 seconds when needed, by blowing into the tube and even faster to deflate when not in use! It is the lightest booster seat on the market at only 500g which means that once deflated and popped into the compact storage pouch included, it can fit into bags and gloveboxes really easily!
The booster seats themselves are made of a durable material similar to that used for life vests and the seats are made up of memory foam and a strong webbing harness. The booster seats are both comfortable and colourful with 5 bright colours to choose from; Union Jack, Irish Shamrocks, Star’s and Stripe’s, Black, and Pink.
The booster seat uses the cars 3-point seat belt to secure it in place and with 2 hardwearing red clips to show you where the belt loops through, it’s one of the easiest and quickest seats I have ever put into the car. There are also positioning clips included to fit smaller passengers and for extra comfort and the booster seats meet all current EU and US car seat regulations.
As a best-selling parents favourite, winner of more than 20 design, innovation and safety awards including Mumsnet, Mother & Baby and Practical Parenting and the IIHS Best Bet Booster Award, the BubbleBum Booster Seat is a car seat perfect for use in car rentals, taxi’s and for unexpected travel with the additional benefit of being able to fit 3 in a row easily on the back seat! For £29.99 the booster seat is an affordable way to keep your child safe and sound in the car! We absolutely love the designs and the booster seat has been used a number of times in Mario’s car which has been really handy!
